Millennials and Generation Z set record-high numbers in the 2020 election with an estimated 49%-52% of young people voting, up nearly 10% from 2016. Junior business information studies major Rasaan Hatcher voiced the meaning behind his vote.“I was actually conflicted by the results because at first, I was excited that Donald Trump wouldn’t be reelected but also never thought Biden was the ideal candidate as well,” he said. Hatcher added that it is still “historic because we get to witness the first Black female vice president of the United States.”Young people of color played a critical role in Biden’s victory by casting votes in “overwhelming margins,” according to a report by the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement at Tufts University. Black and Asian youth voters gave 87% and 83% of their support toward the Biden-Harris vote, according to the same report. When it comes to how the Biden-Harris administration will tackle current issues, students said some issues stand out more than others.Hatcher said he hopes the Biden-Harris administration will “develop strategies for immediate response to the ongoing COVID-19.”Sanchez added that no issues are too small to ask to change.“I want it all. Whether it’s our basic human rights or access to healthcare, I’m really hopeful that the Biden administration will get this country where it needs to be,” said Sanchez. Issues such as decriminalizing drugs and police reform stand out to Hatcher because they “pose needed conversations around race and mass incarceration.”Junior graphic design major Kelvin Gray added that conversations focused on Black communities and equality are a “long-overdue topic that needs to be handled.”Gray said minorities, especially Black people, need to be included in decision-making processes.

GORMAN SCORES HIS FIRST SENIOR GOAL FOR STEVENAGE

first_imgGorman in action for Letterkenny Rovers before he departed for Stevenage Borough last summer.Dale Gorman scored his first goal for the Stevenage first-team against St.Albans on Monday night and in doing so capped a remarkable week for the young Letterkenny man.Last week Gorman was at the centre of a storm, he was kicked in the head by a Mexican player during an international fixture at The Milk Cup between Northern Ireland and Mexico.The clip received national attention, and IFA authorities came down hard on both sides for the mass brawl that brought unwanted negative attention to the popular competition. Gorman wasn’t badly injured despite the vicious kick, and the tough midfielder played in the rest of the competition for Northern Ireland.He’s progressing well at Stevenage and this was evidenced further on Tuesday night when he scored a cracking goal against St.Albans in a pre-season friendly fixture.Gorman will be hoping he can break into the first-team on a regular basis during the forthcoming season ahead.They say a week is a long time in football and in the case of Dale Gorman, it’s a very true statement.   GORMAN SCORES HIS FIRST SENIOR GOAL FOR STEVENAGE was last modified: August 6th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Dale GormanNBewsNOrthern IrelandSportStevenage Boroughlast_img read more
